Frequently Asked Questions - Domain Name
1. Who owns the domain name
when I register with US Net?
You are the owner of your domain.
We will register your domain when you sign up for an account with
us. You will be registered with Internic as the administrative
contact and we will be listed as the technical and billing contact
for the domain. If you decide to secure a US Net domain
it will remain the property of US Net.

The Internic fee of $70
covers your right to the domain for 2 years. The cost is $35
for each year to maintain your registration.
3. What if someone has a trademark
on a name used in my domain name?
Internic will register almost any
name that is not already taken. It is up to the person registering
the domain to be sure they are not infringing on anyone else's trademark
by either using their exact name or a similarity.

register my new domain name?
Depending on the amount of traffic

that same day up to a week after submission.

can connect to my domain name?
Your domain name should be available
within a couple of days after Internic has confirmed the registration
of your domain. Please be patient updates to different
parts of the world may take longer than others.

or transfer a domain to US Net?
